Do you want to renovate just one room in your home,
but you don't know how to do that or where to start?
In only one day, we will plan and design one space in your home.
I will design a new layout for the room and give you all the information
you need to carry out the work with reliable and honest professionals.
"Quick renovation program"
to design one room (it could be the kitchen, a bathroom,
the living/dining room or a bedroom) in your apartment
for Italian or English speaking clients who want to find a fast and easy solution.
How does it work?
1. Meeting in your apartment
(up to 3 hours)
We will discuss what your needs are.
I will have a look at the space and take measurements.
I will propose some sketches with a different design.
We will choose colors and materials.
"Shopping List" – I will make a list of all the items to buy with measurements and quantities so that we will not miss anything.
2. Shopping! (Up to 3 hours)
I will help you select the most appropriate quality
materials in line with your budget.
After the meeting, we will go shopping to choose everything you need for your room renovation.
I will help you choose the most appropriate quality materials in line with your budget.
We will go together to showrooms and select everything you need. For example, if you renovate a bathroom we will choose tiles, sanitary ware, faucets, bathroom cabinets.
We will go to stores that I know, which I am used to working with and which I trust.
If necessary, I will translate the proposals to English, so that you know what each proposal includes and I will help you in negotiations with suppliers.
* Stage no. 1 and no. 2 will be done on the same day.
3. Preparing plans for contractors
After we finish shopping, I will prepare a set of new plans, called working plans for the contractor who will do the work.
The plans include all the exact measurements and information that the contractor will need to get started.
Precise plans do not leave room for inaccuracies or mistakes.
I prepare a document for the contractor with a list that explains precisely what they should do. This list is useful to get an accurate quote for the job. (This document is called "Package for quotation").
You will receive the plans one week after our meeting by email in PDF format.
I will connect you with a kablan (contractor) who can do all the work.
You're also getting:
Excel file in Google Drive to manage your budget
One hour consultation on the phone or Skype.
Dictionary of terms related to the renovation
List of standard dimensions in Israel
A list of recommended and reliable suppliers
Depending on the project,
you may need all the package or just one or two modules

What clients say...
“She was instrumental in helping me find an excellent contractor who made the whole process quite painless.”
She facilitated the conversation with the kablan
making sure I knew exactly what I needed to ask for.
Debby accompanied me to choose granite for the countertop.
I appreciated her expert eye when choosing the material.
The end result is a kitchen that is a pleasure to look at
as well as to work in.

“The Contractor (kablan) you work with is competent and helpful, further to being remarkably friendly.”
I am very happy to have chosen to work with you because,
in addition to being absolutely professional,
you are extremely precise, punctual and responsible.
I highly appreciated the fact that even though you don’t always agree with the client, you listen and try to find out his desires.
The contractor (kablan) you work with is competent and helpful,
further to be remarkably friendly.
Thank you for everything!”

Nice to meet you!
My name is Debbie Schor Elyasy.
I fulfilled my childhood dream and immigrated to Israel in 2004.
I experienced the frustration of insecurity that you feel when you do not control the language and still do not understand the local culture and mentality. Therefore, now that I feel like an Israeli despite being born in Italy, it is important for me to help you realize your dream of having an apartment in Israel.
I am an Italian-Israeli architect with experience in architecture, interior design and green building in architecture offices in Barcelona, Milan, and Jerusalem.
I have an Israeli license in architecture (License No. 117947). My office, existing since 2009, deals with the planning of private homes, luxury apartments, offices, etc., starting with the initial planning stages to the small details, including handling licensing procedures.
In the recent years, I have helped with success dozens of customers from Israel and from abroad planning their home in Israel.
I will be honored to accompany you in the process of planning, designing and renovating your apartment in Israel.
What if your taste is different from my taste?I believe that the house should serve the client. The client is the one who should feel comfortable and happy, not me. So it is important to me that the client be involved in the planning process from start to finish. It is essential for me to understand what is the client's favourite style and how they like to live their lives. My job is to help my client make their dream a reality. I do not plan based on one specific style I like; I choose and adapt the project's style to the particular customer according to their taste.
Are you an architect or an interior designer? What is the difference?I am an architect, and this means that I can work both in the design of new buildings and in interior design. If a building permit is needed, I can handle the process without splitting the process between many people. An interior designer can only design what is inside the house. And they are not authorized to issue building permits.
I only need to design a small part of the apartment (could be a kitchen and living room, or bathrooms). Is that possible?In most cases, yes. I suggest you contact me so that we can evaluate your situation.
Do I need to come to Israel to work with you to develop the plans and go to choose materials?If you are not available to come to Israel, I can take care of everything for you and manage the entire process online.
We are thinking of buying an apartment in a building under construction, can you help us with the the changes we wish to do to the plan and follow the works?Of course! I will be happy to help you make the necessary changes, to follow you throughout the design process and to represent your interests with the contractor.
Debby, it looks too beautiful to be true ..."Right! It sounds ideal! And sometimes there are failures, but I'm here to solve them and help you (as you can see in Brigitte's testimony below).
“The client feels like everything is under control”
"The amount of energy that you put into your work goes way beyond a simple architectural planning service.
The willingness to learn new things (like the production of wine!)
and care about the fact that the project meets all of the client’s standards, make the client feel like everything is under control.”
Lina, Kadma Winery, Kfar Uriah
